Feuertrutz Award ‘Product of the Year 2023’ for GLORIA GmbH

VR Fire Trainer convinced all along the line
This year's FeuerTrutz Award for the best product in the ‘Organisational Fire Protection’ category went to GLORIA GmbH and its VR Fire Trainer.
Every year, the FeuerTrutz Award trophy honours pioneering products and concepts in three different fire protection categories. The jury, consisting of FeuerTrutz readers and a panel of experts, helped the VR Fire Trainer onto the winners' podium, and rightly so. The GLORIA VR Fire Trainer paves the way for a new type of fire extinguishing training in the virtual world. The product consists of virtual reality glasses (VR headset) and a dummy fire extinguisher. Using the VR headset, training participants enter various virtual environments and are guided through realistic exercises that simulate various fire scenarios. Additional functions such as fire spread, smoke development and material flammability provide an unprecedented degree of reality. The GLORIA VR Fire Trainer is also characterised by its mobility; it does not require an external computer and is therefore ideal for use almost anywhere and at any time. 
‘We are extremely pleased to receive this award and are overwhelmed by the recognition,’ says Marion Heidrich, Operational Director of GLORIA. ‘This award confirms our commitment to innovative solutions in the fire protection sector and motivates us to continue working on the development of pioneering products.’
